Sisters Meet Taylor Swift Thanks to Community Help

-

Two little girls, who recently lost their mother to a mysterious illness, spent Saturday evening with their favorite celebrity. 

 

In July, Stefanie Ballard passed away from a mystery illness. Doctors were unable to find a cause or a way to heal her.

 

Since then, friends and community members have rallied around the family, including her husband Pete and two little girls, Riley, age seven and Reese, who just turned five.

 

Saturday night, thanks to that support and a lot of help from The Bert Show on Atlanta's Q-100 radio station, the girls and their dad met superstar Taylor Swift at her Atlanta concert. 

 

They said it was an incredible, but bittersweet, chance to make some happy memories after Stefanie's death.

 

Pete Ballard posted to Facebook after the meet and greet. He says that the star gave the girls a big hug and told them she liked their dresses. 

 

It was a night that the girls will never forget.
